Nissan’s 370Z, also known as the Fairlady Z Z34 debuted on October 29, 2006, and is long due for a refresh, with one rumored to be in the works. There have been several special edition models, like the NISMO Z-Challenge Spec, 370Z NISMO, and more, but one model the automaker probably doesn’t have in mind is one riding on 33-inch tires. Meet the Nissan Z-Adventure, a one-off vehicle that Yokohama built in collaboration with Nissan engineers. Read more for a video of it in-action and additional information.
You may have seen this before, but Gunnar Turnquist’s custom-built Nintendo 64 console is now officially the world’s smallest. He had to trim the motherboard down to fit inside a small case, while remapping the intricate connections and its tiny circuits.

Japan-based tuning shop Liberty Walk recently got their hands on one of these classic supercars and gave it a modern makeover, complete with flared wheel arches and a new body kit. To give it an ultra aggressive stance, the vehicle was equipped with an air suspension. Read more for additional pictures and a video.

Kyle Williams may be a 400-ton Caterpillar truck driver by trade, but in his spare time, he’s in the garage making his automobile dreams come true. His latest project is a 1995 Ford Mustang with an extreme forced induction setup, or to be more specific, eight turbochargers, one for each cylinder. Originally, the project car was supposed to be a 2003 Ford Mustang that ended up in an unfortunate coolant spill accident, and this project was the result.

For a Nissan GT-R that truly stands out from the rest, look no further than this 2014 model, complete with a unique custom engraved bodykit.

Other exterior modifications include a custom rear wing and stanced black / chrome wheels that sit on a lowered suspension. The exhaust was created in-house by Kuhl and consists of three massive blue-tipped central tailpipes. Read more for a video, additional pictures and information.

Let’s face it, standard bike wheels just aren’t made to ride on ice. So, how does one get around this issue? By replacing the wheels with giant circular saw blades of course, and that’s exactly what an engineer, who goes by “The Q” online, did. First, the tires and spokes from the bike wheels needed to be removed before re-engineering the chassis to handle the massive blades. Like most things you see online, we don’t recommend trying this at home. Read more to see what happened when it made it onto the ice.

You can install tracks on just about any vehicle, including the Lamborghini Aventador, but it isn’t always a good idea to do so. This supercar already sits low to the ground, so even on tracks, it’s still doesn’t have enough clearance to make it over snowy mounds. In this case, the ground was a bit too icy for the AWD vehicle to handle even with tracks, and it either needed to have studded versions or custom chains.
